G7 talks dominated by U.S. quitting accord

G7 talks dominated by U.S. quitting accord”

In addition to the financial pledge, Bloomberg also made a quick trip to Paris in light of Trump's announcement, in order to meet with French President Emmanuel Macron to discuss more grassroots alternatives to the USA government's commitment to fighting climate change.

It also specifically noted President Donald Trump's decision to unilaterally pull out of the landmark Paris agreement on climate change.

"The United States will continue to engage with key worldwide partners in a manner that is consistent with our domestic priorities, preserving both a strong economy and a healthy environment", reads the statement.

President Donald Trump's recent announcement that the USA will withdraw from the Paris Agreement-adopted by almost 200 countries in 2015 and aimed at limiting global climate change-has created a sharp split between the United States and the other G7 countries on climate policy, which is on full display in the environment ministers' communique.

USA environment chief Scott Pruitt is being recalled from Group of Seven climate talks in Italy. These aren't just the conclusions of the overwhelming majority of climate scientists, they are also shared by the U.S. Department of Defense. "And we're going to persuade other states and do everything we can to get the whole United States of America fully supporting all the efforts needed to decarbonise America's economy - and, in fact, the world's economy".

Italian Environment Minister Gian Luca Galletti said a dialogue had been kept open with the U.S.to see if there were the conditions for Washington to reenter the Paris accord.

The U.S. said it would not sign up to a pledge by Italy, Canada, Japan, France, Britain and Germany which called the 2015 Paris agreement on climate change "irreversible" and key for the "security and prosperity of our planet".

Kerry noted that the formal withdrawal process from the Paris Agreement will last four years from the date it entered into force, on November 4, 2016.

"The worldwide community is awaiting for our message", Galletti said, calling it one of sustainable development, ecology and serving the world population. For those who say we are a republic, the question still stands.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel, French President Emmanuel Macron and Italian Prime Minister Paolo Gentiloni have said the Paris agreement can not be renegotiated, urging their allies to speed up efforts to combat climate change. He has said the USA could try to re-enter the deal under more favourable terms, but Italy, France and Germany have said the Paris accord cannot be renegotiated.

Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Scott Pruitt was among the loudest critics of the Paris deal in the Trump administration.

"And I think the Paris Accord which my friend Amber Rudd had a huge role in helping to shape is a significant step forward".

"GM will not waver from our commitment to the environment, and our position on climate change has not changed", the company said in a statement.

Hendricks (pictured above, left) said it was an "important signal" that many USA states, cities and firms still adhered to Paris' goal of curbing climate-warming carbon emissions.
